CMB Carl Fletcher Scholarship

Carl Fletcher spent his life creating innovative ways to excite students about broadcasting. He was Director of Broadcasting in Olivet Nazarene University’s Department of Communication as well as an Assistant Professor. He also served as Operations Director for Shine.FM (WONU). One of Carl’s greatest desires was to see his students join the ranks of successful alumni influencing the world for Christ through the radio industry. 

On November 7, 2015 at the age of 45, Carl passed away suddenly. He is survived by his wife, Camille, and four daughters as well as many students who treasured their mentor. 

To honor the man who inspired a new generation of broadcasters, Christian Music Broadcasters created the Carl Fletcher Scholarship. 

The purpose of this scholarship is to financially enable Broadcasting/Communications/Media professors wishing to accompany their students to Momentum at a supplemented rate of $199. The Carl Fletcher Scholarship Fund will cover the remaining balance.

If you are an educator who teaches Broadcasting at a college or university and would like to attend Momentum, use the form below to submit your application for the Carl Fletcher Scholarship. If additional financial assistance is necessary, please indicate your needs on the form. It is CMB’s desire to help where there is a need. 

*All applications must be received by May 14, 2021.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
